190717 Histoire 056

We got to know Papa Ikondongo, a charismatic personality, thanks to the performance Histoire(s) du Théâtre II by the Congolese choreographer and director Faustin Linyekula. Papa Ikondongo has been a celebrity in Congo for many years, especially since the very first performance of 'Lépopée de Lyanja' - by the way, an important source of inspiration for Faustin Linyekula in this NTGent production. Our sympathy goes to Papa Ikondongo's family and to our colleagues in the cast and crew of Histoire(s) du Théâtre II.
